Anna was born in about 1615, presumably in England. She was the daughter of Stephen Jordan and his first wife, whose name is unknown. Anderson states that her father's origin has not been determined.
Stephen Jordan emigrated from England to Massachusetts in 1634 on the Mary and John; it is assumed that his first wife wife and daughters Anna and Jane accompanied him. They settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
Anna Jordan married Robert Cross on 20 August 1635 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts.
Anna Cross died 29 October 1677 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts Bay Colony.
An Ancestry.com One World Tree, cited by a contributor to this WikiTree profile, stated that Anna was born in Denham, Suffolk, England, but cited no source for this assertion.
A merged profile indicated that Anna's mother's name was Susanna Peacock, citing an unsourced pedigree resource file on FamilySearch.
